With all of the junk that crowds supermarket shelves, it’s a relief to find those brands that take pure quality seriously. Non-GMO, free of artificial flavors, made with sustainable ingredients or simply made with ingredients that we can pronounce–these are things that put a spring into our step and perk up our taste buds!
Over the years, we’ve noticed that some of the same brands also have pretty sweet intentions with their business models. From spice-masters to champions of chocolate, here are a few companies that prove, in addition to great taste and pure ingredients, love just may be the secret sauce.
A little pinch of Chili Sea Salt goes a long way in helping you to create that Mexican meal of your dreams. Of course, founding Chef Eduardo Garcia, who endured a life-altering injury, has another recipe for success. Using his experiences for the positive, he helps and inspires others with a unique mix of upbeat energy and empathy so that they too can follow their dreams and get their lives back on track.
Once you taste a 2 Degrees bar, made with whole grains, fruit and nuts, you hardly need a reason to feel good about buying more. Low and behold, they give you one anyway! Just like Love With Food subscription boxes, every time you purchase a 2 Degrees Bar, they supply a meal for a hungry child.
There are plenty of companies that source fairtrade chocolate (and we love them too). Divine Chocolate is the only one which is actually owned by its farmers. Packaged in unique wrapping peppered with Andinkra symbols that show their dedication to everything from wisdom and humility to patience and harmony, a bit of bittersweet is suddenly so much more.
PB&J lovers, listen up! Now you can have your sandwich and do good too. Yumbutter comes in a variety of nut butter flavors, but no matter which one you buy, the mission remains the same. Buy one; feed one is always the result. With a focus specifically on high-risk areas in developing countries, Yumbutter is making the world a healthier place at home and abroad.
Dick & Jane Baking Company:
What happens when a teacher goes into the baking business? You guessed it: Healthy snacks that kids can eat and learn from! But Dick & Jane’s commitment to education doesn’t end there. The company is currently creating a foundation for education with a goal of raising $1,000,000,000 for education across the country. We’ll snack to that!
